PvP will be available in game vs other villians to start with. The arena's and pvp zones are in the game but those zones will not be sync'd with the COH servers so that Heroes can fight villains for 60-90 days. This is supposed to be the same time period that villains max levels is bumped from 40->50. Supposedly this 60-90 day period is so that Villians have a chance to reach level 40 before they run into level 50 heroes.

Oh wait... Bank heists are a pretty big part of this game...
The bank heists in game are nothing but a instanced dungeon that happen to be banks. Police do not repond with increasing force, you don't have to hold hostages, there is no sense of urgency, and worst of all you don't even get any money.

And that doesn't make the game feel Villany...

Where is my Xbox 360!?!
